On 17th March was Saint Patrick’s Day, the Patron Saint of Ireland. Conor made a power point presentation and explained us how people in Ireland, England and North America celebrate this big day. They paint their faces green, drink green beer and might even dye their pets green! People go out in the street, meet in pubs and enjoy seeing green parades. He also told us about the legend of Saint Patrick who scared snakes away from Ireland, the shamrock (the Irish national symbol of luck), leprechauns hiding pots of gold at the end of the rainbow and, to finish, he showed us some Irish music and dance!
Thank you Conor for giving us another lesson on British culture and language!
